Australia's men's volleyball team continued their flawless start to the Olympic qualifying tournament in Japan on Saturday when they posted their second consecutive straight-sets victory.
The world No.22 Australians overcame their higher-ranked opponents Puerto Rico 25-14, 25-19, 25-20 at the Tokyo event - their last chance to secure a London Games berth.
The victory followed Australia's opening win over Venezuela on Friday.
Once again, it was 22-year-old Edgar Thomas, who starred against Venezuela, leading the Australian attack and scoring a match-high 19 points while fellow Queenslander Adam White posted 13 points.
The young Australian team again displayed their power game, leading on blocking 11-4 and on serving 4-2.
"We knew Puerto Rico would be tough mentally but today, as a team, we showed we are ready to make the next step in tough situations," captain Igor Yudin said.
"We showed we have the ability if we are in trouble, where we can switch on and get ourselves out of tough situations. I'm proud of the way we played."
The Australians have two rest days before a crunch game on Tuesday against Asian Champions Iran.
